Jade Butterfly - symbol of love, transformation
Hand carved in China
The Butterfly is a symbol of change or transformation, joy and love. Carved in jade, this symbol will promote spiritual awareness, and love. Add a chain and wear it as a pendant, or place it on your altar, or bedside for spiritual guidance.
Butterfly is a powerful symbol in myth and religion. For Early Christians, it represented the soul itself. In China it symbolized conjugal bliss and joy. American Indians call upon the butterfly for guidance in change, color, and happiness.
Symbol of successful love
A butterfly carved from jade holds a special romantic significance. Ancient Chinese legend tells of a youth who wandered into the garden of a wealthy mandarin in pursuit of a multi-colored butterfly. Instead of being punished for trespassing, his visit led to marriage with the mandarin's daughter.
Today, a jade butterfly symbolizes successful love.
The "dance of the butterfly" can teach you not to take things so seriously. The butterfly has taste sensors on the front legs, enabling them to experience life through motion (dancing, walking).
Butterfly brings color and lightness to your life. Color is an important part of our daily life and can affect how we respond to various situations. (you can read more about color here.)
The Butterfly protects in the sense that she lets change be joyful and not traumatic.
